re: breath of the wild, queermisia 

I actually found out after looking it up that supposedly the carpenters in ocarina of time were supposed to be slightly better representation (calling link a "cute boy") but it wasn't carried over in translation

would prefer if Nintendo stopped being just outright bad to queer people

Show thread

breath of the wild, queermisia 

the clear lack of lesbians in Gerudo Town is an extremely glaring missed opportunity

only queer character the game is allowed to have is Bolson, who isn't even allowed to be queer beyond gross stereotypes

@packetcat windows gamers, since apple's years of advertising convinced mac users they don't have a personal computer

tired of video game music tributes that have terribly mixed audio

I'm no techie, but if "major websites" are down then perhaps the problem isn't with the tech but with the fact that there's such a thing as a "major website"

There's no reason we all have to visit the same ten websites as each other every day, support the little guys

I like the way this place works, where there are lots of little sites and you can choose the ones you interact with, but they're all interlinked on a network, you know, like a kind of inter... net...?

dayjob 

almost done with mess of a mini-project which means I won't have any looming deadlines

pandemic, not learning anything 

@IrisKalmia yeah.

to be fair, where I live the rules were enforced enough and people followed them enough that I do think most of the people who aren't wearing masks at restaurants and stores were vaccinated

but like, outside of that, there are tonnes of folks who aren't masking on walks, inside apartment buildings, etc. who definitely weren't

expensive tech purchases 

one of the best investments I made was getting a 100W USB-PD charger and a 100W/100Wh USB-PD battery. I got these about a year ago and overall the purchase came to around 150$, but it was so extremely worth it.

the battery can work as a UPS, offering simultaneous 100W in and 60W out, so you can still fully power a hungry laptop while charging it at half the speed. since it's 100W and 100Wh it only takes an hour to charge fully but offers several cycles of a phone battery for its charge.

like, if I want to go out to a café with my work laptop and can't sit near an outlet, I can get nearly an hour of work done even with docker running, which is impressive.

like honestly if I had the ability to provide PoE with this I'd get another one and use it as a UPS for my networking equipment and home server

pandemic, not learning anything 

already now that mask restrictions are being removed for vaxxed people I see people sneezing and sniffling in public without mask

like did you even understand at all what the entire last year of shielding was for
